Hi,

I have attached pictures of a tree bark and its leaves for identification. The trees are growing in Bandipur just beyond Mysore and look like a plantation of the same variety. They are slim trees. 

Grateful for identification please.

Many thanks!

Remote chance of an Anogeissus sp. perhaps ?

Here is a link that has a picture of Cleistanthus collinus taken by
Pankaj Oudhia
The bark seems different.

If you are talking about Betula pendula, the answer is no.

All the best Marianne.

I will inform about its simple but promising uses as medicine when your Anogeissus will become a tree.  .

Hi Marianne,
  Just so that you are not disappointed - the seeds require pre-treatment prior to sowing...
They have to be soaked in cold water for 24 hrs. The seeds that sink to the bottom of the container are viable and have to be promptly sown. The seeds that are found floating obviously have to be discarded.
     Good Luck !!!
                         Regards,
                          Neil Soares.

This is not Cleistanthus collinus. In Cleistanthus the bark is at
first buff or creamy in color which during summer turns to black. the
bark does not have blotches. the leave does not resemble Cleistanthus.
also it is not A. latifolia nor A. pendula.

Thank you for all the kind directions of the group esp Rashida and Neil! I will try soaking them before planting. I will be really happy if a few grow!

Ok so probably thats why the sweet tamarind which I brought from Bangkok  -- only a few sprouted. They are a year old and are still so stunted in growth.

regds,

Marianne

Welcome and all thebest Marianne! Anogeissus has very many medecinal uses. Very keen to know about your sweet Tamarind is it the same sp.  Tamarind indica L.?. Coincidently I happened to buy Sweet Tamarind (Thailand) from the Mumbai market the other day and it really tastes as sweet as dates! Sending the pictures in a separate mail.
 
regards,
Rashida.

Yes it is the same Rashida. When I went to Bangkok for a conference -- UNEP a friend told me about the Tamarind. I bought a kg and really enjoyed it! Saved every seed and planted some.
Several little plants have popped up but ALL are really tiny still. I put some in the ground and in pots. Both are not faring very well at all. Will get a pictures and send to you!

Pl check my blog.
and this! 

regds,

Marianne

I guess Anogeissus latifolia,
we can see an oil gland on the lower surface of the leaf.
